Give to Calgary Reads

Reading opens up a world of opportunity


Our goal is to give every child the chance to become a confident reader. But we can’t do it without you. We rely on the generous support of businesses, organizations, foundations and individuals to help us provide resources and events in schools and for our expanding range of community initiatives. We also count on book donations to ensure all young children can experience the joy of having a book of their own.

“Learning to read is the key that opens the doors to the future. As the world opens up for young readers, their opportunities and choices expand.”
